Posters from our Andy Sweet Collection

Andy Sweet was a gifted photographer who documented the residents of South Beach with his associate Gary Monroe from 1977 – 1982. In 1982, Andy Sweet’s life was tragically cut short when he was murdered. Shown are two posters from our Andy Sweet Collection donated by Andy’s mother, Audrey Sweet, back in the year 2000. Both posters were advertising exhibits for Andy Sweet and Gary Monroes’s photographic work in the years 1979 & 1980.
